KELOWNA - Students at George Elliot Secondary School in Lake Country weren't in class today thanks to a tranformer failure, but they'll be back tomorrow.

Superintendent of Schools Kevin Kaardal says in a release the transformer failure knocked out the power at the high school forcing the cancellation of classes today, Nov. 3.

The power has since been restored and classes will be back in session tomorrow, Nov. 4.

— This story was update at 2:42 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016 to say the school will be open Friday, Nov. 4.
